Easing the audit

Dennis Beresford, accounting professor and audit-committee chairman of Legg Mason and Fannie Mae, was quoted in a article about easing auditing pressures for chief financial officers.

“The information that the audit committee can gather from different people in the finance function can help them better understand what they hear from the CFO, in effect giving them more confidence that they are getting the ‘straight scoop’ from the person that they hear from most often,” he said.
